Returning from a bruised hip,
While on this hot stretch, Trumbo's line has climbed to .284/.339/.532 in 209 plate appearances this season. He's one of only two Angels with a slugging percentage over .500 this season.
Trout has come through big in his last three games, going 8 for 13 with two home runs, six runs scored, six RBI and two stolen bases. He's hitting .302/.378/.582 in 217 plate appearances this year.
Valverde has been a stabilizing force at the back end of the bullpen since joining the team in late April.
Porcello had been on a roll in his last four starts, but the poor outing Thursday raised his ERA to 6.28. It was also the first time in five starts that he struck out fewer than five batters. He next faces the Pirates at home Tuesday.
Diamond hasn't had a quality start in any of his last three games. His next chance is against the Brewers in Milwaukee Tuesday.
Home runs were a problem for Santana with the Angels last season, when he allowed 39 in 30 starts. He had allowed six homers in eight starts heading into Thursday. The poor performance gives Santana a 3.14 ERA going into a matchup against the Cardinals Tuesday.
It was Frieri's third-straight appearance allowing at least one earned run, though he eraned saves in each of his previous two games.
Coello has not allowed an earned run in 7 1/3 innings this season.
Blanton's rotation spot will be in jeopardy when Tommy Hanson returns, but Thursday's start was a good way to staunch the bleeding after allowing 23 hits in nine innings over his previous two starts. He'll face the Dodgers Tuesday with a 6.19 ERA.
